  • Fly infested and did not smell good. Maybe some AC and some fly screens but it was a budget motel so lesson learned. Utensils and appliances too old, fridge hardly worked. Beds were clean and comfy. Maybe needs a coat of paint and an update. whole place looked as though it had been like that since the 1950's including the carpet. The laundry was disgusting with clothes all over the floor and machines and a cupboard with God knows what in it was open for all to see. Worse accomodation of our 14 day stay. 1
